amazon Razer Banshee reviews
First time seeing Banshee, confessed the writer felt a little … shaky. Familiar with the lines only in-ear headphones are compact, impressive on the headphones clamped to as 2 … fist in my ear that I do not really comfortable. Banshee design of large hooded style headphone, the predominant color is gray headphones metal, with groove sawn definitively on 2 ear. Key blocks in the design of the Banshee is the straight lines and polygons, you will not find the soft curves of this product. Comes with a square design, the thickness of the details for the user also feels solid, trustworthy first sight. Products seemingly inspired design from a helmet in the armor of the hero in the world of StarCraft. Modern, rugged and robust.
The exterior of the Banshee is crafted entirely of high quality plastic, the joints are very tight and there is no excess plastic head.
In the center of the outer both 2 ear are StarCraft II logo, a strip at the bottom of the headset are made of LED capable of illuminating. The color of the LEDs can be changed and will change according to the speed of the user commands while playing StarCraft II. Specifically, if the APM (Actions Per Minute) of users less than 50, the lamp will light green, and the color of light will change to red when the speed gradually ordered increased and reached bright white when the player’s APM 350.
In the hands of the Korean Gosu speeds operations such as electricity, the lights will gradually shift to the red and white brightness APM exceeded 350. At the same time the lamp also has the task of informing the players were attacked.
Imagine a room in one game that all players are wearing Banshee, certainly the difference in the level will be “denounced” … right on the player’s ear. Banshee also arranged in 2 ears of controls increased volume of the headset and microphone, microphone mute button simultaneously and quite comfortable headphones.
Besides, Banshee also comes with a detachable microphone is. This Micro removable units quite easily. But they also do not quite understand why the designers chose Razer Detachable Microphone, because obviously a detachable components so you will be lost or forgotten. Micro Plus jacks will also be a place where dust, moisture, easy to fall into, affect the quality of the headset. Actually, the compact is not an excuse for this omission, because users can completely folded up the microphone, while ensuring that the convenience neat. Micro comes with ear rubber body, allowing users reshaped to fit better with the location of each person.
Banshee uses the USB port to connect to PC and 2m long wire with braided fabric cover. Banshee thick wire, and it looks very tough, promising that the product can withstand the “abuse” from the hand-tempered gamers. But a huge minus point which is so wanted durable wire, Razer has built on the wire braided crust too thick, leading to stiff connectors Banshee. This in turn leads to a more unpleasant consequence of the Banshee that is very twisted wire and easy to tangle, which once had been twisted or tangled, the uninstallation is not easy at all.
On the ears of the Banshee’s 2 black foam pads, the quality of this great 2 pads, soft, comfortable. 2 pads can be removable, promising the ability to replace in the future if the current sponge collapsed or damaged.
Overall supplementary features highlights of Banshee is the ability to change color according to the light speed when gaming commands. Besides, they also feel quite enjoy “playing” with Banshee, in the first few days. Banshee’s light color can be changed using the management software included. But later on, gradually the lights too bright Banshee became a nuisance: Lights too bright to see the film in a dark room when the screen was always leaning blue because of light reflection on Banshee, adding that because the writer has to wear glasses, should always see two blue bars show up at 2 inside the glasses, especially in a dark room, the glare glass making unobstructed views.

In general there is a proper conclusion with all headphones: good or bad depending on the person. According to the description accompanying document, the Banshee headset itself also has an audio processing chip, they do the task “pick up” the sound environment and amplified in the game, the player feels like is standing in the game. Imagine, just close your eyes, you will feel like you are standing in one fiery battlefield or a murky forests poured rain. And this system has worked relatively well in the game, StarCraft II trial with the writer but not a gamer, but also feeling somewhat Environmental sounds are amplified makes the game feel more real.
For specialized gaming headset, perhaps one of the important factors that simulate surround sound. The writer also has the opportunity to try to use the simulator software on Banshee surround sound and found the results impressive, the sound is pretty accurate regeneration of direction, especially the test all the sound simulator behind. Once the writer had “startled” by the sound up crispy shells sounded behind. Yet some try all sound simulator atop his head feels emit noises somewhere between the two ears, the sound is recorded rather than transient. Of course the quality of a headset Strereo as Banshee will not be compared to your 5.1 speakers, but considering the price, do not ask for anything more in Banshee as it has done its duty fairly.
Those who intend to use Banshee headphones will probably be disappointed. The first is the ear using a USB port, so the player with 3.5 mm jacks will become useless. Actually the Banshee use USB instead of 3.5mm is also reasonable. The system supplies power to the lights, sound processor and 2 speakers neodymium 50mm is definitely too much with 3.5mm jacks. But the test results on the computer sound also results only at “acceptable”.
In contrast to the cinema by Banshee is quite ideal for simulation capability of the surround sound headset is quite good. However you will only be able to view the movies on computers or other devices with a USB port, a rather annoying nuisance.
Add one more minus points for quality Banshee when the ears are not well soundproofed. Banshee wears on and the noises around continually slamming into the users ear. Razer supposed to take advantage of the size of the Banshee is not restricted to creating a better soundproof headphones.
Overall, for the price and what Banshee shown, surely many will falter when choosing Banshee. Auxiliary features of Banshee quite interesting, but not useful. Sound quality is not enough to convince the most important and the application of the Banshee is restricted on the computer than using a USB connection. However, with the fan of SC, or those who need one earpiece form of beautiful, unique design, comfortable feeling of use, perhaps consider the Banshee. After all, Banshee is not a headset too bad, although it is not the best headphones that you can find in this price range.
